 I always thought it was mostly market size. Europe was still
fragmented in a lot of trade isolated countries. Still, the US
stole about as much as they could from both the Germans and the
British technologies. If one considers market as being a
resource then yes it was resources. The computer industry just
didn't use that much raw resources.
